The Huntsville-based company announced it had received two Army contracts valued together at almost $2 billion.
On Thursday, Torch announced a $722 million task order. On Friday, Torch announced a $1.065 billion task order.
The first contract was with U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) Aviation and Missile Center (AvMC) Systems Simulation Software and Integration Directorate (S3I) for Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Aviation and Missile Systems.
The announcement said the task order has a five-year period of performance and will be executed primarily in Huntsville.
According to the announcement, the Torch team will develop and apply models and simulations to aviation and missile system analysis ensuring warfighter readiness and future capabilities are realized. Team Torch will supply cost-effective solutions that facilitate readiness and technological dominance of the U.S. Army’s current and future force.
“Torch is pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with the DEVCOM AvMC S3I M&S customers,” Torch President and CEO John Watson said in the announcement. “We are proud to be a part of their important mission to provide weapons development and modernization support to our warfighters.”
